Leadership courses

For people who move from an operational job to a managerial one, it is often quite unclear how their new role differs from the former one. New competences, new ways of behaviour are needed and new expectations are set. This two day course will give you insight in and understanding of your role as a manager.

The Line Management Essentials course gives you a clear insight in your role as a line manager, in how to communicate with subordinates in day-to-day but also difficult situations, how to lead and coach them and how to help them succeed in their job.

I had the pleasure of attending the first edition of the new Line Management course at ECCRT. This 2 day course dealt with many enriching topics, essential to every line manager. Marc Devisch turned the course into a true powerful learning experience, thanks to the many practical day-to-day examples, workshops and role plays. I highly recommend this course to every new line manager. Thank you ECCRT
